Faith Statement

I believe in Lord Jesus Christ as my personal savior (Romans 10:9), but I fall short to the glory of God (Romans 3:23). I know what is good and what is not, but end up doing the opposite (Romans 7:19). For this reason, if anyone else is to follow me, it will be like a blind person following another blind, and both of us will fall into a pit (Matthew 15:14). However, this is for my benefit to know that my salvation is by grace, not something I earned (Ephesians 2:8).

In order to be eligible for this grace, I must repent to my Lord (Ezekiel 18), pass on this forgiving grace to others (Matthew 18:21-35, Parable of The Unmerciful Servant), and call upon others to repent (Matthew 4:17, Acts 2:38). I must also commit myself in doing the will of the Father in heaven, as not everyone who says "Lord, Lord" will enter the kingdom of heaven (Matthew 7:21-23). One of His will is to take care of the unprivileged (Matthew 25:31-46, Parable of The Sheep and the Goats). I will follow the command to love other disciples of Jesus (John 13:34-35), for "love covers over a multitude of sins" (1 Peter 4:8). I will also follow the command to "make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you" (Matthew 28:19-20).

This is not something I can do alone, and I look forward to working with other disciples so that we can "encourage one another and build each other up" (1 Thessalonians 5:11). "For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them" (Matthew 18:20).
